More people like BvS than hated it.. the movie was number one in. Ouray sales for 6 weeks and ranks high on all time sales for blu ray/dvd
Too many heavy blurry depth of field shots this season. Reminded me of the canon 5dm2 days of vimeo.
So much for my Paul Blart Wuhan Wetmarket Mall Cop script.
"Birds of Prey opened to a modest $33,010,017 (domestic) against a roughly $84.5 million budget."
--- Add on a nother 20 or so million for reshoots.
"Yes, this is a bit low for an opening, especially for a film projected to do about $40 to $45 million its first weekend."
---No, estimates had it at 55-60 million. 40 was already consider low... but then wow.
"For instance, Birds of Prey opened at number one that first weekend."
Doesn't really matter. Plenty of flops, turds or turkeys open number one.
"(The Hollywood Reporter even pointed out that coronavirus fears could have stunted the film's Asian returns.) "
--- The film was never slated to open in china. people already called this out. Also, Box office mojo put a decimal point in the wrong place to tally the austrailian box office- claiming it made 25million there. But in reality, it made 2.5 million. So subtract that.
"Between those, smaller, riskier, lower-budget films are spread out in an attempt to reach diverse audiences."
---but they didn't show up.
"all three films combined for a big return on the investment overall; "
---except recent news suggest, BOP will lose money. It needs to clear 250 million.
"Birds of Prey is currently sitting at a worldwide gross of $147 million, so it's definitely been a slow box-office burn, but it will break even and be fine."
---studios do not look for slow burn earner that trickle in money as the execs grow old. they want hits. Shazam is getting another go-around because maybe the ROCK can save it's mediocre earnings.
"This strategy at Warner Bros. will hopefully lead to more unique properties and risky, smaller films with new perspectives."
---As long as first time directors who come out of nowhere don't get to work with first time producers* who write vanity projects for themselves where they outshine characters more important than her own. The BOP are now ruined by this cheap looking CW-in-theatres, garbage.
